Tom Hanks is back as Robert Langdon in Inferno. Tom is good, Inferno is so-so, but I’ll still give it a C rating due to the running around Italy part. Such an awesome backdrop. I can forgive huge plot holes, the Dan Brown book, and even more plot holes. Italy and Florence in particular are just freaking awesome. I paid $5 for this movie, so you I can forgive me. You, my readers, can wait for streaming. You don’t have to fork out money. But this movie is harmless and entertaining in a ‘I’m sorta half asleep kinda way”. Nothing wrong with that. No need to think folks – the art, symbolism mumbo jumbo is just that – all crazy talk.
I go to the movies to be entertained and this sufficed for the afternoon I wanted to enjoy. I like Tom Hanks and he was fine enough – he’s sincere and can project concern over a virus that could kill the world. Only he must solve the crazy puzzle to save us all. What better hands to be in than Tom Hanks? Seriously. I’m not going to discuss the plot or the reason to run around Italy. Just go with it.
Felicity Jones is pretty, a good actress, and had me convinced until a plot twist. Apparently, the box office disagrees. Where the Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown’s first big book to movie succeeded, Inferno has totally tanked. Hey, life moves on.
